The Friends of the Big Duck and the Flanders Northampton Volunteer Ambulance Corp. joined forces to host the first ever egg hunt at the Big Duck Ranch Sunday morning.

Volunteers filled 2,500 plastic eggs with candy and scattered them on the grass behind the Big Duck for the children to find.

There were also games for them to play with hula hoops, jump ropes and pin wheels, and the winners were given stuffed bunnies.

Refreshments were free and the students at Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts school in downtown Riverhead donated 250 cookies in the shape of the Big Duck.
